Tariff reform in the Port of Piraeus: A practical approach

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


This paper gives an overview of the main elements of the tariff reform that took place in the port of Piraeus during the last decade. The process of 'structural' revisions in many of the port's tariffs took place mainly between 1996 and 2001, which is the period during which, among other developments, container traffic through Piraeus more than doubled. Focusing on the above period and on container tariffs, the paper highlights the motivation for the changes and some of the practical difficulties associated with the process of port rate making in this major Mediterranean port. The tariff reform in some eight other categories that took place in that period is also briefly outlined, and some success and failure stories are described.
